romney do they continue down the same trajectory, which for the first time we knew he had a pulse as an individual. >> yeah, that is a great question. i think the thing that is impressive for president obama in the polls is just the likability factor and it's not just to see more a more down-to-earth than mitt romney? is the whole obama package, the family, the president and people connect with them even anti-obama voters. look, i think that the hardest thing to do is to advise a campaign that has been running for four years and i don't work for them and they know way more about what they are facing than i do. my advice would be to, my advice to them would be very simple. look, i think he needs to close the deal. i think he needs to say it's not about mitt romney any more. i think what last night showed is the next four and a half weeks, it's about barack obama and i don't think they ever ran as if they had this in the bag. i know the analysts say obama, he was 20 points ahead and he put in the fourth string and now it is a tight game. which is why they started defining mitt romney b

, point one point two, point three. he stuck to that. mitt romney -- president obama looked down most of the time. even when mitt romney made a joke in the expense. he still kept looking down. it begs a question when was mitt romney the last lump or at least this mitt romney the exraint we're bringing john editor in chief in to the conversation that complaint about mitt romney was that he could not stay on message. that he could not talk about the middle class. he could not talk about jobs, that he could not come off as likable. on every one of those tonight, check, check, check, check. why tonight? >> and begin we shall obviously much more time than we have. it seems to me that he in order to get a performance like this, he has to get himself in a sigh displace in intellectual place. he has to organize his mind and spirit, if you will. and is a say what do i need do. mitt romney has been a hapless candidate as you wrote, the other day has been somebody who in every venue of his life, every chapter of his life almost without exception only a couple of has been successful. he's used to be

everyone trusts because he plays it straight down the line and it is great to be here with you. i have to be on the reality. [laughter] okay, i like what glen said. i think the issue for romney going into this was likability. but i don't think governor romney has had a long time to show a likability and i don't think he says like me because i am a nice person. i think you show likability and connection by what he did last night which is a single-minded focus on what his strength is and what the concern of the country is so i think he did his job. i think you know, for all of us in this room, who probably are not undecided, i think the campaign you know probably kicked off i don't know -- 2009 but i mean for a lot of us who were consumers of news and followers of politics, the conventions probably -- okay, the campaign. for those undecided voters in ohio and other places and i know it's weird to say with all the ads they are watching -- let me back it up. there are a lot of ads that are playing. doesn't mean that people are watching all of them all at the time. i think for the average p

of our environmental standards to go down to federal standards. mckenna: congressmen jay inslee tries to minimize that with the reference to mitt romney. it is transparent and kind of funny. back to the matter is when we are talking about the federal standards and state standards, we should be looking for harmony. if it was adequate, why would we try to make the state standard cover. that means that people have to comply with up to three different standards for the local government standards, the state standard and the federal standard. an example would be, for example, shoreline regulation. you have to go through the local permit and requirement under the critical areas requirement. and in the federal department imposed by the army corps of engineers. what makes sense is to harmonize those requirements as much as possible. sometimes we want to have a higher standard, but the idea that we should automatically do so just doesn't make sense. it is just a knee-jerk response that imposes a lot of needless costs that are not identified. >> moderator: you get 30 seconds to respond. inslee:

] you made that happen. i made the same point down in florida the other day. governor romney heard me say that to you can't make change just from washington. and somehow we got all excited about this. he changed his speech and said i'm going to make change from the inside. and it got me thinking, well, what kind of inside job is he talking about? [laughter] is he talking about the inside job where outsourcers are writing the tax code? is he talking about the inside job where oil companies are writing the energy plan or health insurance companies are writing the insurance plans? is he talking about the inside job where a bunch of men in washington decide women can't make their own health care decisions? because it that the inside job that he's talking about, we don't want it. we don't need it.

it would be an interesting tactical question for romney does he have to sit down with harry reid or sit down with joe manchin and mark warner and eight others and the same for president obama. i think the republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected and i do not believe that john boehner can hold if he has a margin in the house i don't think that he can hold off the republicans against dan obama version of the deal. the believes are stronger than the used to be. i think that we have more leverage over members in the campaign finance issues and other things but i think obama going to the lamar alexander in the senate and there are some equivalence in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go round the leadership and i suspect he wouldn't mind. he would feel that he is obliged to deal with him in 2013 if romney has lost but people see bipartisanship when it's a leadership negotiation and the other is picking off against the wishes of leadership but the premise on both of those is the rest of
